of the approach is that it can't pass congress. it's a bit of a motor cal box for the white house. they like to do something and there is a chance, but what is possible and what gun control advocates want are not in the same ballpark. do you agree with that? >> i think lynn sweet hit it on the head when she said they want to avoid biting off more than they can chew. the problem is how do you appeal to chris christie's viewpoint that speaks for many where in order to deal with him, you are going to have to give up thing he is looking for. to get a buy in on an assault weapons ban, you have to convince him of a mental health component that speaks to his concerns. if the several issues are in play, does it run lynn sweet the risk of being too comprehensive for passage? that's the question. >> tamron? >> i see that is the balancing act that biden and the white house and leader who is want something to happen have to do. sometimes is something better than nothing do sacrifice the perfect for the good. to show movement, they might not go with the comprehensive approach and just to get something done, ev
cal expenditures really what is driving the deficit? according to former labor secretary robert reich, the answer is no. quote, he says, they are temporary. if anything, america's safety nets have been too small, and shot through with holes, and that is why the number of percentage of american in poverty has increased dramatically including 22% of our children. so at a time when people are pushing for cuts in social programs we must pause to show that the entitlements addressed in the realities are as well as the economic future. back at the table, dorian ward, and fellow at the roosevelt institute, michael crowley deputy correspondent for "time" magazine, and christine brawn, associate professor at nyu, and also law professor at seton hall law school where chris christie was educated and i will tease you about that forever. the fact is that mitch mcconnell has step ped in and will be a part of the conversation and it is not boehner, and they are putting entitlements back on the table. is this the right thing for us to be doing? >> no, but it is part of a 30-year campaign to repeal th
with such a powerful photo that it ended up sort of dominating the actual content of the art cal that was below the photo which said, look, this is one-third better than previous administration equal can bottom line and deep problems in the pipeline. at the same time, i think also, there's that photo is not nothing. i mean, it says something about what the inner circle is. i'm curious what you guys think about invented issue or real issue? >> i think it's important that we're having discussion but i think it way more complicated than the photo. we've had a year of photos and there's another one of a bunch of people to speak in congress about birth control none of whom were women so we're sensitized to this conversation. but fundamentally what's interesting is why we're having it and a little bit deeper about what it means for what comes next. 1 of 3 people who voted in this election were women who voted for obama. we had a discussion about binders of women. we're having this discussion about the cabinet largely because of how we got here. i think the personal matters but what that means for the
the electronic cal component of it. now when they opened up the investigation boeing said they were happy to have them look at these flights. but this came just after this week where three different planes were grounded because of all these different problems. now, when this news broke, boeing was fine with it but the investors were really actually very jittery. the stock dropped about 5% which equalled about $3 billion in losses. >> that is a big loss. what about this new survey which says about a third of universities expect to either decline or grow slower than inflation when it comes to tuition. does that mean parents should start celebrating this? >> parents should start celebrating just yet. really what's going on is that the desire to go to a four-year college is starting to drop. and rightly so. the economic uncertainty has been going on for the last couple of years, especially job growth. people don't think they're going to be able to have a job after they go to college. so that is going to drop the revenues for colleges and universities. so what they're doing is just increasing tuition
cruz sentinel" in cal has the headline, "gun control a loaded argument." the authors of the article ask several experts if we are safer against an intruder with a gun in our hands. the "daily courier in" prescott, arizona writes about barry goldwater's photographs, an exhibit that opened this weekend features photographs taken by the conservative senator. most of the photos are portraits of the navajo heem and pictures of the arizona landscape. the "los angeles times" has a story about how the university of arizona is the first in the country to offer a minor degree in hip-hop. the school added that concentration toyotas africana studies program. it's part of a trend to give serious academic study to the subject. that's kind of fun. >>> well, not fun, the new and deadly violence in afghanistan, which has killed at least seven civilians. this in a blast inside a mosque following a night raid by nato and afghan troops. that violence comes amid fresh reaction to an accelerated timeline for u.s. troops to withdraw from the region. earlier on "meet the press" colin powell said the u.s. would
of representatives. you would not expect radal cal action on guns to go through the house of representatives. in fact, i'm not sure i'd expect it to be proposed by this administration. i do expect there to be movement on high-capacity magazines, on being able to trace data. i do expect there to be movement on closing what some people call the gun show loophole. what really means is private transactions don't have essentially any real regulation around them. it's much larger than gun shows and about 30% to 40% of all guns are sold this way. and the assault rifle ban, that was a ban that had a lot of holes in it in the first place. it had a very difficult time defining what was and wasn't an assault weapon. it had a lot of cosmetic features to it. they tried to do it based on what they looked. i think it would be important to tighten that down, but i think most people think it was more significant in tightening the assault weapons ban. the final thing i'd mention is that we've had a very real success in the last couple of decades cutting gun death by focusing on illegal gun possession in law enforcemen
